Island Foodie -Top Spots to Try


The Stone Grill Restaurant

Located at Wharf Road, with amazing views over the bay, the Stone Grill offers one of the latest and hottest concepts in dining. This is a unique dining experience where meals are cooked at your table on natural volcanic stones heated to 400C. Serving Vanuatu’s high quality organic steak and the freshest fish and seafood, the focus is no doubt, on the quality of the produce they serve. Restaurateur Eric Chatelain who has opened several successful restaurants in Noumea knows his stuff and The Stone Grill is full most nights, with patrons in animated conversation, enjoying dinner in a great atmosphere. Meat and fresh fish lovers will relish on the taste of a great cut of steak such as eye fillet, cook as you like on the stone, or a juicy piece of fresh tuna, caught locally. If you are looking for something else, the Stone Grill also has a full a la carte menu with choices such as beef tartare, carpaccios’, pastas, ‘cote de boeuf’, and awesome hamburgers and sandwiches in the lunch menu. The changing special board, has choices such as lobster salad, whole stuffed calamari, and the popular ‘trio of beef’ (sirloin, scotch and eye fillet on the stone), a great way to experience Vanuatu’s beef, with three cuts on the same plate. Open 7 days from 11am to 10pm, lunch and dinner. Ph: +678 5464506.
